This is an important issue that affects everyone working with XHTML so it
deserves further discussion.

Personally, I am for having only one namespace for XHTML for two reasons:

1. Less headaches for me.
2. Less headaches for my customers.

Namespace is just a scheme for sorting out the names regardless of how the
names are used.  I would like to see just one namespace for all three
variations and future versions of XHTML.  It is true that semantics of these
tags might be changed in the future but that is just plain bad engineering
from my point of view and should never happen.
